Hi all my name is Robert, and during September of 2013 l was diagnosed with bladder cancer type 3,1/2 and that after I had chemotherapy l would be operated on to remove my bladder, prostrate and a part of my bowl for bladder reconstruction. I was lucky as the person who informed me of my devastating news was none other then the brilliant surgeon Mr Mathew Perry, who went through in great detail what would happen to me in the forthcoming months. The operation took place at St George's hospital in tooting on the 4th March 2015. The operation took 16 hours! And my recovery went relatively well, and I was home within 10 days, however this caused problems and l returned to St George's with and infection. Today l live a normal life and do all the things I did before the operation and can withhold going to the toilet for up to 5 hours, yes it's true, so don't despair, it will come within a matter of months. During the night I found it better to wear ether pads or a bag, this enable me to have a good nights sleep. The down side to this operation is be prepared that you may not have an active sex as you once had! they say that Viagra can work? But unfortunately not for me. I hope that my experience will dispel all the negative thoughts you may be feeling at this moment in time, as you will have a fulfilling active life ahead.
Best wishes Robert "westminster59
